Bubble Coral not Bubbly

I have a 29 gallon biocube and no matter what I do with this coral it is always pissy.. Every test I do is right where it needs to be and it's not in direct flow or light..so I don't know why it isn't bubbly?

That is not looking too good. Water test results? What type lighting? Anything picking on it?

I read about it before I got it and it said that the lighting is not important just not direct lighting. I have a 39g biocube not the special lighting one for anemone and I placed it where it is a light flow of water my test results are 0 nitrate,nitrite and ammonia Ph 8.2 calcium at 500 0 phosphate and copper nothing picking on it. It's just always pissy. I have an anemone and it is doing awesome in my tank with out the extra lighting and it can't get even close to it either.. Help please!!!!

Mine is 13 yrs old and you can see it on my images. Ime lighting is very important. I have VHO lighting. They cant say lighting is not important. I would find someone else to get my info from.

Mine was always mad looking, I thought it was a goner. Then my blenny knocked it over so it is upside down between the glass and a rock (not near the sand) and it is puffy and happy. So I'm assuming even though I had it in a cave arch, it was still too much light for it. I even fixed it once and it was mad again, so my dutiful blenny knocked it over again for me.
